There are some who believe the Christian life does not require dedication, discipline, or sacrifice. There are some who believe the Great Sacrifice of Christ gives them permission to “sin now and ask forgiveness later.” Additionally, they convince others to believe the same things. There is no biblical support for such beliefs.
In God‘s Word, we’re called to live a life of sanctification, honor, and holiness. We are called to live a new life, a transformed life, a Christ-centered and Spirit-led life. However, it is impossible for us to live such a life on a continuous basis. Because of the sin nature that dwells within us all, we will fall short from time to time. Yet, God has not set us up to fail. God wants us to live powerfully, effectively, and victoriously. Therefore, He has provided His Spirit and His Word to equip us with all things that pertain to life and godly living.
It’s a tragedy that so many Christians lives powerless and unproductive lives. We are children of the King, ambassadors for His Kingdom, and representatives of His power. Surely, we should reflect the power that exists within Him. So throughout 2013, we will bring you several posts based on teaching we are receiving from our pastor. We are determined to live a life of power and to help you do the same.
